Beyond the block college tour

Root2fruit Youth Foundation is a registered 501c3 organization.

The mission of Root2fruit is to Empower the youth, Rebuild the village and Change our tomorrow. We are committed to providing life skills training to the youth in Austin through arts, sports, and mentorship. Our “Seeing beyond the block” initiative promotes both education and exposure to youth ages 14-18. Seeing beyond the block is a college LIFE SKILLS tour. During this trip, the youth are introduced to higher education, student life and travel beyond their neighborhoods. Root2fruit has a saying, A child can’t BE what they can’t SEE. If our children are never exposed to greater than will never aspire to be greater. Our goal is to raise $6275, this would cover the cost for the entire experience. The funds provided through sponsorship will be used to provide transportation, lodging, food, and activities to the participating youth. It will help to release the financial burden and make this experience FREE OF CHARGE.

Your sponsorship will help assure the success of “Seeing beyond the block”.
